How not to run a business - dismissive service and poor quality product
Unfortunately, we had a terrible experience with Sofas Direct. Rude and dismissive service, a complete lack of communication or accountability and a product that was a real let down. Super disappointed in the whole experience, please take your money to another Australian made manufacture, until they sort out their business.
My Favorite Sofa Store
I've been meaning to write this review for a while but time got away from me. I purchased my first piece from Sofas Direct (South Melbourne) about 10 years ago - a Balmain double sofabed, and then a few years later I purchased a Watson double sofabed. The quality, look and comfort of these have been outstanding, and they are still like new. Late in 2018 I decided to replace my living room sofas which were falling apart, and I spent hours looking at furniture sites but could not find the look and durability I wanted. I finally went back to Sofas...Direct (Hawthorn) and decided to go with a 3 seater and a 2 seater Bendigo sofa - the style and comfort were ideal, coupled with the fact that there were a huge range of upholstery fabrics to choose from. I am delighted with these sofas - they are so comfortable and durable, and they suit my 1930s house. There were no manufacturing flaws and the quoting, sales, and delivery processes were straightforward. I think these sofas will outlast me, to be honest, and I recommend anyone looking to buy a sofa to check out Sofas Direct if you want really solid and comfortable furniture.
Worst customer service
Fact 1: Decor looked good and I was thinking of purchasing a product or two.
Fact 2: Walk up to the lady at the counter wanting to ask about a particular design of sofas. To summarise the conversation, instead of saying they don’t manufacture this model, she proceeds to convey the following messages. 1. You can’t afford it. 2. When I said it’s an investment, she proceeded to comment about the look on my husbands face. 3. If we manufactured it here it would cost $6500. My response was yes, that’s how much I spent on my last couch and I walked out of the store.
Great products and “The Sofas” in particular!! As it’s 100% Australia made so it’s of great quality. Super friendly staff, great customer service. All in all good experience with sofas direct.

Really loved the variety and quality that Sofas Direct offers in affordable range. The sales team seems very kind and efficient. In particular i would like to mention about Shaina, who helped me through choosing the range without being a pushover and gave great ideas to set up the interiors for our living room using their wide range. I would highly recommend the Sofas Direct, Fitzroy store to pick up any furnitures.
Had a great experience with sofas direct really good workmanship, style and comfort quality is good 100% Australian made worth the money. Also the sales staff is very helpful and friendly with exceptional after sales service.
